MediaLink is a “DLNA”:Wikipedia:Digital_Living_Network_Alliance () media server that works as a preference pane, providing what is probably the most seamless and hassle-free way to share media content between a and a “PlayStation 3”:Wikipedia:PS3:

Despite some (other people’s) complaints about Nullriver support and some personal reluctance (since their companion product hasn’t been updated to support firmware 3.x, and looks like it never will), I eventually decided to purchase a license after testing some of the alternatives (like Elgato’s EyeConnect), since it worked vastly better for me and was about the right price.

Not only did it generate sane navigation trees of and content (including keynote podcasts), it also generated thumbnails of most media files correctly, something none of the other alternatives did as well.
